William and Kate meet Mary and Fred

Australia’s two favourite princesses came face-to-face yesterday when Kate Middleton visited Princess Mary in Copenhagen.

Kate looked radiant in ruby red as she and Prince William visited Denmark for their first joint humanitarian mission.

They met Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary at their palace for some tea before visiting a UNICEF warehouse to support the charity’s East Africa Appeal.

It was the first time Kate has met Mary and the visit showed just how much the royal ladies have in common.
